Oh no! I hope they find a way to get that back on track!

I've loved A Christmas Carol since I read it in the 4th grade. Our TV station shot our own version in which I play scrooge http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcSZigHnEhI For the last several years an idea has been running through my mind that the book ended too abruptly and need to be filled in. While I make no claim to be able to improve upon perfection, an entire story has come to mind. I've put pen to paper and am currently writing what I call A Christmas Carol part 2 (working title). I would love to know if it should go to the shreder or does it have some merit. How would I go about this?

You might try sharing your work with a writers' group and getting some feedback, John. At some point, if you're seeking publication, you'd need to query an agent. There are plenty of reputable agents with websites and blogs that offer guidelines on how to write a query, and looking at their sites will help you determine which agents might best represent your work. It can be a fairly arduous process, so make sure your work looks as good and professional as you can make it, to better your chances. Good luck!
